party response delivered by republican senator rand call of kentucky on line after marco rubio finished his response. he said today that he did not want the republicans to be the opposition but for them to be the alternative. if you did not like him, they were putting up an alternative to the alternative kind of like off broadway and off, off broadway. there is lots to discuss. i want to go to the reverend al sharpton and lawrence o'donnell. what are we hearing from the president that indicates any difference in approach to a second term as compared to his first? >> he was very clear he would be more aggressive. he talked a lot about the executive action he would take. he would go around congress. i don't think we heard that as much in the first term. i think he was very specific in how he wanted to go several courses. what was billed as a rebuttal but never rebutted, because mr. rubio mentioned immigration, never said how the republicans wanted to have immigration. he says his parents were immigrants, and that was it. he said he went to school on government money but is against governm

's also the most important speech in the so far short career of senator marco rubio. so, i think all eyes are going to be on our -- i won't say our rising star, i might say our only star. >> and george will, that will be one of the few areas tonight where there could be some common ground between the president and marco rubio, between the president and top republicans, immigration reform. >> immigration reform is a promising area for cooperation. far more important than gun control, if only because if the president gets all he's asking for on gun control, it won't make a particle of difference in gun violence, as far as i can tell, however, immigration concerns not just the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country who are looking for a path to citizenship, but the other 300 million americans who have a stake in immigration to revitalize our economy and replenish the work force. >> new secretary of state. >> john kerry, former senator of massachusetts, next to the chief justice of the supreme court. and, of course, they're in the next several weeks going to be dealing with gay marriage
that as well. >>> first some developing news to bring you right now, republican senator marco rubio is now on his way to the middle east, right now. the senator says he will be visiting israel, he will be visiting jordan as well. senator rubio made that announcement about his trip on his website this morning, said he was traffic in his role as a member of the intelligence and foreign relations committees. his trip, of course, comes in advance of trips to israel planned by secretary of state john kerry and president obama. meanwhile, in other political headlines, jesse jackson jr. has been charged with misusing campaign funds. federal prosecutors filed the indictment against jackson friday. practices cuters say jackson diverted about $750,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including a $43,000 gold plated rolex watch and more than $22,000 in michael jackson memorabilia. >>> "the washington post" is reporting that fbi agents had been looking into allegations that new jersey democrat senator bob menendez patronized prostitutes while in the dominican republic.

'll be holding a news conference afterwards and going to take questions. memo to marco rubio and rand paul bring your "a" game. who would you rather watch after the state of the union? rubio, paul or nugent? anna? >> well, you know, i'll be watching my hometown senator, i will be watching marco rubio, he'll be the one not wearing the cowboy hat or funny facial hair going on, he'll be giving the official republican response. you talk to ted nugent was the republican party's nightmare, no, is he the media's darling, he's a quotable guy. he is entertaining and colorful. >> no doubt about that. maria? >> i actually will be focused on marco rubio. i think he will be giving the serious response to the state of the union but if you're looking purely for entertainment carol, for that train wreck i can't look away type of feeling, then certainly i think ted nugent is the person to watch tonight. >> ladies, thank you for playing. anna navarro, maria cardona. >>> i'm sure you remember the adele went up to accept the award someone else was on stage h no business being there. who the heck was that guy? a.j.
republican senator marco rubio was not so pleased saying ispart quote this legislation is half-baked and seriously flawed. if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress. i want to bring in ryan grim. good to see both of you. >> thanks. >> thanks for having me. >> ryan, white house chief of state. said the white house wanted to be ready with a backup plan. take a listen. >> we have not proposed anything to capitol hill yet. we have a bill. we are doing what the president said we would do last month in las vegas which is we are preparing. we are going to be ready. we have developed the proposals so we have them in a position to succeed. >> if immigration reform has bipartisan support why would the white house feel compelled to fluke their own plan. >> this is the legacy of health care reform. the white house is still scarred from the dramatic experience of watching max baucus spend months haggling with olympia snowe in a room in a senatet office building and also derailed health care reform. that is the only thing that allowed it to drag out over
rubio would have said, you want to know what the state of the union is? let me tell you what the state of the union is. average income of americans has dropped 5%. not since barack obama became president of the united states, but since the recession ended. our economy's in transition. more americans are being left behind. senior citizens aren't going to be assured of these entitlement programs for long. we're $6 trillion deeper in debt today than we were when barack obama became president. barack obama's allowed the national debt to go up by 60% himself since he was president. 4 million more americans are out of work today than were working when barack obama became president. we've got the weakest recovery in over 70 years with barack obama as president of the united states. it is time to think big. it is time to go long. it is time to come together. why couldn't anybody in washington say that last night? >> and there was a lack of urgency to it. there was a sense that -- it was a little bit -- so much depends on what the baseline is. and the president was almost saying things are impr
, creating new private-sector- public partnerships. there was a response from marco rubio and another from rand paul. we will get your reaction to all of this. 202-585-3882 for all others. reach us on twitter or facebook, or send us an e-mail. let's go through the headlines in the national papers this morning. pierce "usa toda -- here is "usa today" -- and then here is the "washington times" -- and the new york times -- the wall street journal -- the washington post -- we are getting your reaction this morning on the washington journal for the first hour. what did you think of the speech, the proposals, and the republican response as well? later on, a line of lawmakers for their reaction and to take your comments. our first phone call is joe in georgia, republican. caller: thank you. i love c-span, greta. it was the same old obama with more taxes and more government. marco rubio is incredible. the key to our future is electing more people like him and tom graves and doug collins and tom price. we don't need this more government and taxes. we cannot afford it. rubio is great. he is a future
-field advantage and he ends up looking like kenneth the page. >> i don't think rubio will look like that or sound like that. i think he will obviously, it will be a play on immigration. it will be hopefully an economic response to the president. to your point, joe, the president has said, we've got to do something about entitlements. the question is what? what are you willing to put on the table? is he going to lay out a specific or some direction towards a specific policy. that's what republicans will look for. more importantly to your question, they have an opportunity to frame this economic argument. you still have 21 million americans unemployed. the rate is still up. you can frame that argument and say to the president, take the laundry list you laid out tonight, give us the bill and we will wait for it in the house and embrace it and work with you and the senate democrats if that's what you want. give us the bill. >> i think the whole speech is going to be in spanish so we won't know what he says. >> i can go to sleep much much earlier and wait for the translation. >> talk about a no win si
. senator rubio and others who say that the proposals on the table wouldn't have changed what happened in newtown are wrong. they are absolutely wrong. if that young man didn't have 30 round ammunition magazines, there would be little boys and girls alive. i'm not the only one that believes that. the families of the kids believe that as well. the fact is that these have become weapons o of mass destruction. they give a false sense of courage to these mass murders who might not walk into these schools and religious institutions and movie theaters if they didn't have the fault weapon in the first place. and without those clips if they walk in, they wouldn't do as much damage. these people who say that these changes and laws wouldn't have made a difference in newtown, they don't know the facts. >> do dwrou think something big and bold can be done or something small like universal background checks? >> i think it's okay to move incrementally. if we started with background checks and moved to other more serious issues like bans on high-capacity magazines, that's okay too. there's a moment i
of most democrats. >> he has to work in a bipartisan way. senator rubio hasn't been invited to the white house yet to talk about immigration reform is a problem. he needs to start working -- he needs to start doing it now. also -- >> isn't bipartisanship a dream of the 'minutes at this point? we have not seen very much of that in this congress at all. no matter what the president says, they are going to oppose him. >> you have a senate right now who bipartisan framework, it is -- already out there. if the president could start getting behind it and actually start doing internal things. we had weekly meet wings coalition groups, bipartisanship, to bring people together. that's not happening now. >> did you keep saying this is the thing we did the last time we had a colossal failure in trying to get the bill passed. why should that persuade me that's the thing to do again? >> he has to at least do that if we are going to get to the other side. he has to be part of that. >> i mean, i think it is false to -- act like immigration reform hinges on -- it is really congress and senate and really
state of the union address that was a response to from senator marco rubio, response very interesting, but it's what he did during the response that has a lot of people talking this morning. lots to get to, as well. >> first there is another major developing story going on right now. dramatic developments overnight in the manhunt for christopher dorner, police now saying they have found charred remains in that burned out cabin after a shoot-out in that cabin near big bear lake, california. dorner allegedly shot two more officers, killing one of them before barricading himself in the woods. his ten day reign of terrorizing people apparently ending when a s.w.a.t. team detonated a smoke device inside that cabin and set it on fire. we still do not have positive confirmation of dorner's death even though they are now saying they have found charred remains. cops spent nearly a week franticly searching big bear. how they finally cornered the suspect. >> reporter: a hail of bullets, police radio captured the moment. a cabin burning to the ground. fugitive ex-cop christopher dorner believed i
the baltimore ravens, brendon ayanbadejo. marco rubio man our listeners and viewers aren't crazy about him. mary nelson says as he told more huge lies, i could see his ears getting bigger and bigger. just because rubio is hispanic doesn't mean all of us hispanics support him. and adam milken says i thought marco rubio sucked. he sucked his teeth. he sucked his tongue. he was sweating like albert brooks in broadcast news. [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> bill: good morning everybody. great to see you today. welcome to the "full court press" here on current tv coming to you live all the way across this great land of ours. from our studio on capitol hill in washington, d.c., this is thursday, february 14. it is valentine's day and republicans sure have a strange way of showing their love, don't they? they show their love for chuck hagel by filibustering his nomination. they show their love for american workers by refusing to raise the minimum wage. show their love for america's children by refusing to support universal preschool and show their love for all americans by refusing to compromise in order to avoid
it has not changed. we're about 30 seconds away from marco rubio who is giving the official republican response to the state-of-the-union address. it is probably no coincidence that the first ever time we had an official response to the state of the union from a party out of hour, in 1966, first time it was televised in prime time speech. the losing parties don't necessarily want to give the party that time on their own. marco rubio will rebut. >> i am marco rubio. let me begin by congratulating president obama on the start of his second term. tonight, i have the honor of responding to the state-of-the-union address on behalf of my fellow republicans. and i'm especially honored to be addressing our brave men and women serving in the armed forces. you may be thousands of miles away, you are always in our prayers. for much of human history, most people were trapped in stagnant societies where a tiny minority always stayed on top and nobody else even had a chance. but america is exceptional, because we believe that every life at every stage is precious. and that every one everywhere has a
did. >> on the other end of the spectrum, david. we had the incident where marco rubio gives the g.o.p. response to the state of the union. it was a great speech, but there was one moment where he reached over and got a glass of water. it was an awkward moment that he himself acknowledged was an awkward moment, probably the thing that "saturday night live" will lampoon, but, msnbc ran that 155 times. 155 times. (laughter) is there any balance here? >> you'll see the media often go out of their way to play up anything that's embarrassing or that looks bad about someone like rubio, especially, who is a conservative rock star, rising star in the republican party. and this is kind of their way of preemptively knocking somebody around, beating them up a bit so that by the time, if they ever end up in a-- you know, running for president, something like that, running for reelection, it's an opportunity to be used against them. we saw this sort of thing hyped when it it came to, you know, when it came to various gaffes that mitt romney made in the last election that i discuss in "spin mast
rubio's case the party chose someone else and in senator rubio's case chose someone who is now a democrat. it wasn't a good choice. let's have healthy primaries. if people want to contribute on all sides let people make voluntary contributions and you will see how it goes. i think primaries you get a good candidate typically. >> chris: let's turn to the president's agenda. what is wrong with the idea that the president laid out in the state of the union that yes at this time particularly when we have a weak recovery we need to spend more money he calls it investment on education on infrastructure, on research, especially when mr. obama says if you make cuts in other places we won't add, his words, a dime to the deficit. >> yeah, he said that about 20 times in the last four years. meanwhile he added $6 trillion to the debt. i think it is really disingenuous. he said in the speech that he reduced the debt by $2 trillion. he added $6 trillion. that means because he didn't add $8 trillion he reduced it by $2 trillion. that is absurd. he listed 50 new programs and said they will not
, his health and the fact that he has grown daily weary. >> let's float marco rubio. >> i love it. he knows who tupac is. >> he says he's not the savior. >> he did. >> he clarified. >> he clarified, i am not the savior. there's only one savior, jesus christ. >> i didn't know. >> joseph ratzinger, cardinal ratzinger then was 78 years old when he got this job and was actually looking at retirement. he was ready to step down. >> right. >> but obviously the vatican calls -- >> he was moving to boca. hey, how do you know, mika brzezinski, that your church, the catholic church, is in serious, serious trouble? >> how? >> when mike barnicle is speaking. when he becomes -- >> when i'm at the pope desk. >> when he's at the pope desk. where is pat buchanan? hey, somebody call pat buchanan and wake him up. what's up next? >>> well, we're going to talk about the state of the union next. coming up, deputy majority whip congressman tom cole will join us. also former deputy campaign manager for the obama campaign, stephanie cutter will be here to preview the president's state of the union address. an
senator marco rubio will give the republican response and kentucky senator rand paul will deliver the tea party response. 4,000 people stranded at sea in the gulf of mexico has been pushed back by another day. lost power after an engine fire set to be towed to mexico but it drifted so far north it will be towed to alabama and will not arrive until thursday. they have been bringing supplies to the ship. passengers are said to be sleeping in tents on decks with limited access to bathrooms water and food. >>> now that pope benedict xvi is revining at the end of the month who will replace him. one of the top contenders is from ghana he would be the first black pope. one of the strongest candidates from latin america is from brazil. only cardinals under the age of 80 can vote for pope benedict's successor which means 118 are eligible. this morning the two mowning men charged with murdering a chicago teen will make their first appearance in court. police say 20-year-old kenneth williams and 18-year-old michael ward mistook her and her friends for members of a rival gang and shot them in retalia
. austerity hasn't worked in europe. why does marco rubio think it would work in america? >> look, what you have to keep in mind is when marco rubio said that. he said that in his response to the president's state of the union right before rand paul was about to give the tea party response to the state of the union. what marco is trying to do here is politically position himself as almost a unifier of the tea party and mainstream conservative fiscal conservatives in the republican party. so, look, the balanced budget amendment is red meat to the tea party. they believe in it because they want fiscal responsibility. i think that was a political and tactical play on his part more than a reasonable or achievable fiscal possibility. >> john? >> bumper sticker politics. it's not serious. it doesn't reflect the realities of government, but it's a popular and powerful contrast the with the democrats because many states have balanced budget amendments and operate just fine. federal government is more complex but all the more reason for president obama to set a clear contrast. if the republicans wan
solution. >> marco rubio is one of the 8 senators outlined a set of principles to achieve a bipartisan immigration reform plan says the president is making a mistake to draft immigration legislation without seeking input from members of congress. in a statement he says if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress leaving us with unsecured borders and broken legal immigration service for years to come. senator rubio doesn't stop there he adds the plan is half baked and seriously flawed. he claims it would make america's problems worse. >> kelly wright in washington. thank you so much. that brings us to look whose talking. massive budget battle that is not going on in washington right now. >> while the president and congress are taking a break 10-days to see queststration. 80 million in budget cuts will take effect. 42 billion will be from defense spending. michigan congressman mike rogers says the pressure is on the president to get a deal done since see queststration is already his idea and wasn'ted the tax hikes back in january. >> he made the argumen
on immigration reform. but marco rubio within hours released a statement saying the president's plan is dead on arrival. that is evis enraging the immign debate. the white house saying it does seem as though the process is moving forward. just to put this in larger context. if you look at the debates on the horizon and the sequester of gun control. they feel it has the best chance of passing because of the 2012 race where the president got the large majority of latino voters. again, this leak certainly enflaming the debate. >> kristen, thank you. emily, you heard kristen talk about rubio's statement. here is the detail of the osedpn arrival and leaving us with a broken system for years to come. emily, what is the response to that tell you? >> it is a pretty hot response. in what has been so far a measured sense of negotiation going on in the senate. i hope the white house would keep the volume lower on this and make sure that cooler heads prevail. it is when you get that bipartisan group of senators working together that you get some product that congress can pass. that is the only place tha
senators john mccain and marco rubio were working on a senate immigration plan that quickly criticized the president's version. it's only a backup in case congress fails to act. >>> more from marco rubio. you remember him reaching for that bottle of water during his response to the state of union address. now a pact, his pact, has turned this into a $100,000 moment. rubio's pact has raised that much money being giving away water bottles for any donation over $25. that's smart politics. >>> so danica patrick has made nascar history. she's the first woman to win the poll for the storied daytona 500. now some details on the pope's declining health. pope benedict may be blind in his left eye. that's according to a german journalist. he tells the newspaper the pope's hearing has also faded. he says the pope is so thin the tailors struggle to keep him in his clothes. he cited his poor health for his decision to leave. he will leave on february 28th. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes.

. you see a guy like marco rubio, who's a simile, has great potential as a hispanic republican senator, going a different direction. rubio still has to care about the tea party, but he's also trying to make his way into a different place. i think they're all jockeying for a place on the national stage. >> so you think he's trying to go hard right? >> well, whether it's 2014 or 2020, you're staking out ground. all these guys are not just your average freshman senator. if your a freshman senator guy like that with a harvard pedigree from one of the biggest states in the country and you're hispanic, you're going to get more attention than most other freshman senators ever do, so you have an opportunity. >> too bad he wasted it. >> by the way, if he's thinking 2016, he wants to make sure, willie, that nobody in the 2016 or 2020 primary is -- and i know people are shocked that we're talking about it, but that's what he must be thinking. it's the only way to explain why a guy would change personality this radically. i guess he's afraid to be attacked as being a harvard guy. so he's -- anyway
